When to Service Your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron Cooling System

It can be tough to know when to have your Audi A3 Sportback e-tron radiator serviced if you don't know what it does, but it's still extremely important. As part of your car’s cooling system, your radiator helps keep engine temperature regulated. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Keeping up with regular radiator maintenance in your 2018 Audi A3 Sportback e-tron is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Audi recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. Your radiator could be close to causing an engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.
